Occupied the runner-up berth in a couple of Group 2 races behind getting off the mark at the third attempt in this company when landing last month’s Gimcrack. Today’s step up in trip will suit, but this is no easy task conceding three-pound to his rivals.
Won well in the Gimcrack; shaped there as if 7f would suit; good chance

J: Donnacha O'Brien
T: A P O'Brien
Winner of a Dundalk maiden on debut in April. No win from his four starts since, but he has run some fine races in defeat; third in Group races at the Curragh the last twice. Looks sure to benefit from today’s step up in trip; connections won this in 2017.
Smart; step up to 7f needs to help him find a bit more (should stay this trip on pedigree)

Justified market support to land a Haydock novice on debut in June. Finished second in the Group 2 Superlative Stakes afterwards, but that form has received a few major knocks since. Stable in-form but others rate as far stronger win contenders here.
Clear second in Group 2 at Newmarket (7f, good to firm) in July; promising

Well-bred second foal out of Group 3 winner Zibelina. Sent off the 5/4 favourite for a Newmarket novice on his debut last month, and he justified the odds to score a shade cosily. This is far tougher, but he falls firmly into the could be anything category.
Winning debut at Newmarket last month, when significantly strong in the betting at 5-6

Deservedly got off the mark at the fifth attempt when landing a Gowran maiden last time out; his first run over this trip. More is demanded back in Group company, however, and he looks the stable’s second string on jockey bookings.
Best form in five starts was when third in Gr 2 Richmond at Goodwood in August; opposable

Verdict

Ready preference is for Richard Hannon's THREAT, who sets a good, clear standard on his last-time-out win in the Gimcrack at York.
